Holding Property Owners Responsible For Your Slip-And-Fall Accident

When you visit someone else’s property, whether a commercial storefront or a residential unit, you reasonably expect that the owner will keep you safe from hazards and dangers. However, negligent maintenance can cause serious accidents that can result in physical and financial hardships.

At AK Injury Law Firm in San Diego, we help injured clients file premises liability lawsuits to hold property owners accountable and obtain the compensation they need to recover. Our founding attorney, Dr. Azadeh Keshavarz, practiced chiropractic medicine for a decade. She saw firsthand how devastating premises liability accidents can be for patients. We use this unique knowledge and experience to build strong cases that maximize your compensation.

Proving Liability In A Premises Liability Case

Sometimes, a slip-and-fall accident is more than an embarrassing memory. Tripping and falling on someone else’s property can lead to serious injuries and trauma, including brain injuries, broken bones and spinal cord injuries.

Common causes of slip-and-fall accidents include:

  • Negligent maintenance
  • Improper lighting
  • Wet or uneven surfaces
  • Clutter or exposed wires and cords
  • Inadequate warning signs

In California, property owners have a legal responsibility to keep their premises safe from known hazards or to warn visitors of these hazards. However, in order to have a valid premises liability personal injury claim, property owners must have had enough notice and time to rectify the hazard.

It can be challenging to prove a property owner’s negligence, especially when landlords or other owners carry a commercial insurance policy. You need a strong advocate who understands how to navigate these complex cases to help you win the compensation you deserve.
